Cradle Mountain—Barn Bluff in 3 days

  • Bushwalk
  • Loop — 36 km
  • 3 days
  • Accessible by public transport
  • Medium
  • 5/5
The Overland Track is one of the best tracks of Australia, but its popularity makes it harder to access now. First you usually have to book months in advance to be able to do it, and second, the hefty price of $200 per person for 6 days makes it a walk accessible only to the wealthiest visitors. But there are other options which will make you enjoy most of the Overland highlights in a shorter time, a bit further away from the masses, and for free. Awesome! This three days loop will let you see the best of the northern part of the track, including the summits of Barn Bluff and Cradle Mountain. (...)

Montezuma Falls

  • Bushwalk
  • Return — 8 km
  • 3 hours
  • Easy
  • 4/5
The Montezuma Falls are one of the highest waterfalls in Tasmania at 104 meters. And it shows. The day we came there, it was practically impossible to see them. The water flow was so powerful that approaching the base of the falls made you instantly wet. Like if you just had gotten out of the shower. And the track? It was wet. It was raining. There was mud. In summary, it was a classic tassie experience, and an awesome one. Access Trail head: in Williamsford, a ghost mining town 41 49 47 S 145 30 9 E. By car: follow the Williamsford Rd from the Murchison Hwy (A10), just out of Rosebery. (...)

This daywalk will take you to Cape Raoul, to see the amazing Tunnel Bay, where the ocean carved a natural tunnel in the cliffs, and to Shipstern Bluff, a surfers spot hosting one of the largest and most dangerous waves of the world. And you can see that from the shore. Just stay way clear of the water if you don’t want to get wet. Access Car park at the end of Stormlea Rd, after 9 km of a well maintained dirt road. 8 km west of Port Arthur. 43 11 42 S 147 46 38 E Public transport: none, the place is quite remote.
